As practicing Bayesians, we need to know how to optimally update our worldmodels based on observation. Information theory
provides a variety of tools on how to do this. To keep our epistemic skills in tip-top shape, I'll be doing a (casual) introduction to information theory, enough to get a survey of the field and find out how to learn more.
We'll apply it to some interesting problems. Bring your questions and your curiosity!
The meetup is at Central Market, 4001 N. Lamar, in the cafe area. Look for the LW and SSC signs. People start arriving at 1:30 pm, and the main activity will begin at 2:30 pm.
